This week the weather in Charlotte has been a vast improvement from the snowy days of last week. The past 3 days I was able to do a variety of runs in preparation for Saturday.
On Tuesday I ran a speedy 2 miles around my neighborhood while Mason napped.
2 miles - 14:53 minutes (1st mile 7:56, 2nd mile 6:54)
Then I took him on a walk/jog, along with Honey on the leash, after he woke up. We finished a slow mile but at least my total for the day hit 3. It's rough (ruff haha) taking Honey for a jog since she is so lazy.
1.05 mile - 15:00 minutes
Yesterday I had wanted to run outside but was not feeling pushing the jogging stroller. So to the gym we went where I ran on the treadmill while watching Season 2 of West Wing (yes that show is over 10 years old).
3.20 miles - 33:39 minutes
Today I couldn't wait to run outdoors while wearing SHORTS! Yes things like this get me very excited. After dropping Mason off at school I ran around that neighborhood and completed a little over 4 miles.
4.25 miles - 35:00 minutes
I feel strong ... I feel ready ... I feel excited. I would love to do better on this year's 10 miler than last year (my time was 1 hour 28 minutes).
Plus the 10 miler is a perfect training run before the half marathon on March 8th (which I still have to sign up for ...)
